JSON request:

{"Entity":{"E":["DataGrid"],"W":{"instruments":[["0880.HK"]],"fields":[{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue.brokername"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue.date"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue.origdate"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue.confirmdate"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstValue.isexcluded"]},{"name":["TR.EPSEstFootnote"]}],"parameters":{"Period":[2019]}}}}

Response:

Excel:

Problems identified:

1. All footnote are clustered towards to the top (similarly to the issue previously with NULL) and do not match with their corresponding rows

2. footnote appears out-of-order vs Excel/EIkon

The problem stems from the fact that for timeseries data retrieval with get_data method Eikon Data API does not implement a concept of master date on which the rows are aligned, which in Excel is achieved through RH:Date parameter. While we're working on addressing this issue, the only workaround I can think of is to include in the list of fields in your request TR.EPSEstFootnote.date, which provides the date associated with each footnote the same way as TR.EPSEstValue.date provides the date associated with TR.EPSEstValue, TR.EPSEstValue.brokername etc. And then perform the alignment of rows on date index between TR.EPSEstValue.date and TR.EPSEstFootnote.date columns in your script.
